This Is the Hardest Golf Shot in the World

(Photos: Legend Golf & Safari Resort)

Mark Twain called golf “a good walk spoiled.” That critique doesn’t apply to the Nineteenth Hole at the Legend Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa. The only access to the tee is with a helicopter. It’s on a cliff 1,400 feet over the putting green. Assuming that you’re on target, the ball is in flight for 26 seconds.

The par is 3, but if you can get a hole-in-one, the resort will give you $1 million. No one has ever successfully made the shot, though.

Make sure that you land close to the green because the obstacles are pretty rough.

If the optional nineteenth is only $2 to play, you have to wonder how expensive the first eighteen are to cover that helicopter lift... No doubt they planned it that way, to encourage the option.
